Do not hate, what you do not love.
Don't look down, like you're far above.
Do not pain, when no pains brought to cause.
Do not take, things which are not yours.
Don't spit your words, if they are distaste.
Don't judge on things, which aren't your place.
Do not steal the joy, from anothers hand.
Do not break the things, which can't be mend.
If it feels like it's wrong, then it probably is.
Love as much as you can, and always try to give.
It is a simple thing, to listen of your heart.
Than of mind, which may be set apart.
Broken be mended, and darkened be clean.
God is the better you, yet to be seen.
What I'd like to discuss are the reasons you believe your position. I would like you to give me reasons to believe what you believe. Now pay close attention to what I am asking from the respondents, I am asking for your reasons for your beliefs.

As I mentioned upon creation God calls everything good.
The LORD God said, "It is not good ............I
...but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die."
18 Then the LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him."

You dont believe there is such a thing as truth so why should I think what your saying holds any value....
God would need to exists in the form that can derived from the ontological argument mainly that God would by nature be morally perfect as that very nature is the external referent for morality.
"This world is a type of 'experiment', that has been adapted and elaborated into something more than was originally intended, for its construct.
Though it can be said that we are 'loved' by our keepers, it is no more than a scientist might love the rats in their lab.
Or the farmer may love the pig they feed and provide a good life to ... until its slaughtered to serve its purpose.
Until we are 'harvested' for our intended purposes.
"Love" like all other things is relative. And to those who see a 'purpose' for what we are beyond what we ourselves can see, that love can be VERY subjective.
We are a experiment. That simple.
And if we get out of hand, or become a threat in any way, we will be destroyed. And the next cycle will begin fresh.
The new 'batch' to continue the work.
We are getting damn close to it now.
It's happened here at least 3 times that I know of. That we 're-cultivated' society on this Earth after a reset.
I'm starting to look forward to it actually. Because the disease infecting this world, thinks it is the cure.
The Children, think they are the adults. And persecute the true 'owners' of this world.
Reset! Reset it all! I say ..."
Just because I don't believe in a thing you claim to be "objective truth", that doesn't mean that I can't spot a liar. And, this is a lie:
Why is this a lie? Because we don't observe moral perfection reflected anywhere in the universe, and certainly not anywhere here on Earth. And, certainly we see no moral perfection in the biblical god.

I read your reply to ServantOfTheLamb with interest and agreement. I think you left out one thing that is divinely human though and that is that inner contentment with one's lot.
I am not thinking about smugness or superiority in any way - nothing could be further away from my understanding of contentment. Its an inner quality you slowly acquire, despite your mistakes and all the sh-t life throws at you.
Truth is subjective.
